what's the difference between the ghost company and the 212th?
The Ghost Company is a part of the 212th battalion.
How it works is that you have companies like the Ghost Company that consists of the ground infantry unit. Each company will have a captain who leads them.
Companies are a military unit and act as a measurement to tell you how large the group is (which is a really basic way of describing it lol). For example, companies are divided into platoons, which are divided into squads.
For a visual, consider examples and think of their numbers for these groups:
You’ll also notice that some of the troopers we know who are part of Ghost Company will be sporting their yellow marks to showcase they are part of the 212th (i.e. Boil and Waxer).
-You let in the outsiders, with their sad eyes and wounded hearts. The orphaned, the abandoned. Let them in your home. Learn from them, yes but raise and love them. Offer them all the magic the whole world has to offer. Then they fuck you. Oaths? Meaningless. Love in their eyes, worthless. Heart they promise you will never be. - Marco Polo (2014-2016)
